Common Garage Door Problems

Published on October 22nd, 2018

Your garage door helps protect your car as well as other valuable items that you keep inside of it. You don’t understand the convenience of a well-functioning garage door until you need a garage door repair in Skokie. At Roberts Garage Doors, there are a handful of problems that we see on a regular basis. It is important to fix the small problems before they turn into big problems.

Broken Garage Springs

The springs in your garage door are responsible for helping the manual-opening process. You’ll notice that you are having a problem with your springs if you are having problems lifting the door or if it shuts too fast. Our team of garage door repair experts in Skokie can assess the situation and determine what parts are necessary to fix your garage.

A Misaligned Sensor

If your garage door is closing and something gets in the way of the sensors at the base of your garage door, your garage door automatically stops where it is and lifts back up. Make sure to check your sensors to ensure they are properly aligned. If they aren’t, it can cause problems with your garage door functionality if your sensors are unaligned.

Your Garage Door is Off Track

When your garage door is off track, it won’t be able to properly open or close. Your garage door may need to be properly reattached to the rail, which our team can help with!

Regular garage maintenance can help ensure your garage is functioning properly! Contact our team of garage door repair experts in Skokie if something is wrong with your garage door.
